IMPORTANT: This is not a Chrome/Google Official extension. A Chrome Extension that offers an interface, with style of Terminal/Command Prompt/Command Line/Power Shell, to execute customized commands. The interface can be accessed in three ways.

======== TARGET AUDIENCE ========

  • Myself
  • Keyboard heavy users: programmers, gamers ...
  • Productivists, who learn for more productivity

======== FUNCTION ========

  • Pop-up, with default hotkey [Alt]+[T], shows a Terminal style interface.
  • Overrides new tab page to a Terminal style interface, with hotkeys to access your top sites.
  • Input [T],[Tab] in address bar(omnibox), then the omnibox will become an inline command input box.

In Terminal style interface / omnibox, you can use text-based command and do whatever you are allowed (limited functionality for now). Use man to see all command available. I personally create a lot of aliases and open website with them.

I still haven't found in what this extension is useful in, especially because I think it's conflicting with another of my extension. But oh boy did I have to rate this 5 stars after reading "Target audience: myself" !! nice
